The Ontario University Workers Coordinating Committee is a voluntary association of CUPE locals totaling more than 20,000 members working in the university sector.
This includes security, parking, skilled trades, clerical, administrative, caretaking, teaching, food service, technical, research and library workers.
Most work directly for the province's universities, although some work for contractors on campuses.
The OUWCC's activities include coordinating university bargaining and province-wide campaigns, political action on university issues, and facilitating information-sharing between locals.
Attached is a letter from Ken Lewenza, President of the CAW, in support of our fight against the contracting out of CUPE Local 1001 at University of Windsor. Let the President of the University know that contacting out good paying jobs to people who are being paid $13.00 with no benefits or guarantee of hours of work is not acceptable.
